I don't mind it a whole lot when they come in and spar with the experienced boxers, but they always jump in at opportunistic times with more or less noobs. That's what grinds my gears.
In my case it was always a proper boxer who knew what they were doing, which makes it even worse. At the same time, I took the punches well and didn't complain until it was obvious I was hurt or got knocked over. So maybe I just looked too composed for my partner to pick up on. My trainer was generally against overly hard sparring but never stopped us mid-spar until it was obvious. The guys were nice outside of the ring and all, but didn't pull their punches at all, despite being bigger (much so in one case) and more experienced. I got caught against the ropes once and felt what I call my "Erik Morales" bubbling up, the instinct to fire back in anger, but I controlled myself. Next time I'm just going to let fly, and without the pillows I had before.

I'm always more concerned about sparring partners who swing wild and mostly do their punching while trading. They can't control their movements or power and are mostly looking to survive in there. That's why they look for the upper hand with the lighter sized gloves (not to mention their physical size).
Staying inside and tight against them always neutralizes their heavy swings while landing faster on them. They mostly stay shelled up and clinch a lot, but sooner or later they do land those unorthodox punches.
I don't understand their methods since they learn close to nothing and they'll be competing against guys their size. But I shouldn't really complain because I'm the one who chooses to jump in with them.
Mother****ers is all I have to say

My issue is I'm a tall fighter, so I just end up walking into their shots if I can't bait them into leading.

16 oz on bags and pads can hurt the timing(a lot of times my coach will have us wear smaller gloves as we start to peak for a bout, if we arent already), with that said, I always use 16 anyway, and am debating using 18 on the heavybag due to knuckle pain that has been going on and off for months now.

That sounds about right and it's a general rule for most gyms.
14oz on pads and bags then on to 16oz for sparring. Only using lighter gloves for sparring while close to peak/to a fight.
As for your knuckles.. have you used different gloves and still having problems? Use gauze on the area and then wrap your hand as usual. Hope it's not your jabbing hand.

Being an MT guy I use much lighter gloves on both the bag and pads, but use Winning's NG2 knuckle protectors. Really cheap and last for ever. They're basically a strip of this kinda jelly stuff in a bit if cotton that you insert over your knuckles under your wraps, they protect your knuckles brilliantly. Super cheap and effective way to protect your hands, buy a pair.

it is my jabbing hand, haha..Luckily it really only hurts on the heavy bag. I just ordered a new pair of gloves, went with ringside, as I have owned many brands now, and as far as bag gloves go ringside have been the best to me.. Love my Lonsdales for sparring though.

I have tried the title knuckle guards before, not sure if they're the same as what you speak of, but they actually seemed to make my knuckles hurt more.

The winning ones are different, they are literally a think chunk of jelly, that's it. No kinda slip on wrap like the other branded ones. You just place the NGs across your knuckles and the wrap your hands like usual. Marquez and whole bunch of other guys use them. Cheap & does the job perfectly. Worth a look, anyway.

You should be using 14oz no? Seems like 16s would be huge.
